Share the Facts is now available on the Amazon Echo and the Google Home.
Owners of the Echo and the Home can ask about claims they hear from President Donald Trump, as well as other public figures who have been checked. The Share the Facts apps use natural speech recognition to analyze and answer questions from our database of thousands of fact-checks.
To find Share the Facts on the Echo and other Alexa-enabled devices, including the Tap and the Dot, open the Alexa app on your smartphone, click on the left navigation panel, and then select “Skills.” From there, you can search for “Share the Facts” and select “Enable Skill."
Once enabled, you'll be able to access the skill by saying, "Alexa, ask the fact-checkers..."
Google Home owners can activate Share the Facts by saying, "OK, Google, talk to Share the Facts."
Users of both Share the Facts apps can ask questions such as:
- “Did Donald Trump oppose the war in Iraq?”
- “Was Obamacare a failure?”
- "Is it true that Donald Trump said climate change was a hoax?"
Try to use the most important keywords in your question, following the examples above.
